‘Players like Gareth Barry and Nemanja Vidic deserve recognition but they’ll never get it because they’ll never be the best players in the league and they aren’t young, yet have outperformed Micah Richards, Wayne Rooney and Aaron Lennon all season long.’ [Inside Arsenal]
‘The fact that all six shortlisted players come from the “Big Clubs” will also be disconcerting to some, but then completely unsurprising to others. The shortlisted is voted by players and – despite the odd special performance from individuals at other clubs – it’s likely that the toughest opponents they face will be the Big Clubs and the players who represent them.’ [Caught Offside]
‘The way I see it, and my eyes are similar to just about anyone else handicapping the award race, there are two horses in this field: Didier Drogba and Cristiano Ronaldo.’ [The Offside]

    Cesc Fabregas is a good young player and I agree so is Van Persie, how is it everybody votes for United players, I used to support United in 1960 and went out with one, but I do not support them now thank goodness
